no tired is balance just got new ones


1 Check the crank sensor to see if it is working OK 2 Look for a water pump leak (I know it sounds nuts but read on) IF the pump is leaking it will drip down on to the crank sensor which will cause a engine sputtering and cutting out. this condition will only be cleared up if the water stops dripping on the sensor ( which you'll have to replace because the coolant [from the water pump leak] will have eaten in to the rubber seals on the sensor. Then you will want to replace the water pump, cause sensors are around $100.00
